The results have been tallied and the results site is running:

http://www.angelfire.com/dc/top100dvd/

Enjoy. Posted Image

Even more people voted on this year's poll, particularly from HTF, so hopefully, the final list is satisfying.

I included some voter comments on the site too, so hopefully the site is a more interesting read than last year's.

I'd love to hear feedback on the list and the site, so post here or if you want to stay anonymous on the site's bulletin board, or drop me an e-mail with comments and criticisms.

Thanks to all who voted!

Good. If I ran the thing last year and remembering those comments from the folks criticizing the list, I know exactly what I'd tell them. Posted Image

Great work and muchos thanks, Luke!! I really enjoyed going through that list. I was shocked -- SHOCKED!! -- at the #1 DVD! Posted Image

PS: Loved the "Dreyer" picture. Posted Image

I just looked at the website but it's been suspended temporarily. Ohh well, maybe tonight I guess.

The site should be up again shortly, at another site who has generously offered to store it for today.

Sorry about all the up-down.

Yea, I tried to load the site but it seems the bandwidth has indeed been exceeded...while you're getting another host for it, how about just posting a text list here for people who would like to browse it quickly?

It's up and running here now:

http://www.angelfire.com/dc/top100dvd/

With all the work that went into the site, I'd feel it was a waste if I just post a simple list here. There's an alphabetical listing on the site too, if that's what you prefer.

Very nicely done Luke. I was particularly pleased to see how well some of the more obscure Criterion’s (e.g. In the Mood for Love).

All-in-all a representative 100.

So who's seen the most of the top 100? I've watched 83 of them. (And that means I've seen 83 of the DVDs discussed, not just 83 of the movies or other programs listed...)

Suggest for next year:

Group all the Universal Hitchcock DVDs together. While the video and audio could be better (except for Rear Window and Vertigo), the documentaries are superb, especially the 90 minute ones on Psycho and The Birds. Together they're just a phenomenal collection of DVDs.

Kudos on the list, it's a lot of fun.

Considering we're only 17 days into 2003, why is this the 2003 list with last years list being the 2001 list? Posted Image

I dunno really. I know the lists were only 13 months apart, but I couldn't really think of what else to call it. 2002? Dated. Version 2? Well, actually last year was the first big one, but we'd done it in smaller scale at DVD Talk twice. New List? New Coke.

If the title is the biggest gripe, then I'm happy. Posted Image Posted Image

I know that I don't have nearly enough of the ones that made the list. Posted Image
